We’ve come to our final 2012 Gummy Awards category: Favorite Viral Videos. It seems like just yesterday we were getting the celebration going with Favorite TV shows, and it literally was just yesterday when we revealed the winners for Favorite Movies, but now we’ve reached the beautiful end and possibly the most exciting category of all. The sparkling wine is very nearly flat, all the balloons are slowly falling to the floor, and almost everyone is looking at their phones waiting for the Viral Videos winners to be announced so they can give their kisses goodbye and go wait in the car while their partner grabs their coat from the “coatroom” upstairs. And we’re almost there! BRING ON THE LIST! BRING ON THE LIST! This list is an easy and rewarding one, compared with both the TV and Movie lists, because every single viral video on this list is going to be a good viral video that we can all enjoy. No arguing about plot holes or about character development or if the food was realistic looking enough or whatever people argue about with TV and movies. Just a straight of good list of dumb stuff that everybody can enjoy. Is the number one video your favorite viral video of 2012? Maybe not. But can you agree that it is certainly one of the best? YES. And if you can’t, you can get outta town, you old stick in the mud. Let’s get to the winners!
10. Saxophone Bikini Beach
09. This Is How We Do It

01. Drunk Man Sings “Kiss From A Rose” To His Cat
Ah, “Drunk Man Sings “Kiss From A Rose” To His Cat” earns a well-deserved spot at the top, while my personal
nightmare favorite “My Video For Briona” comes in closer to the end. No matter what spot these precious diamonds were placed in the Gummy crown, one thing for sure is that they — Jurassic Park Theme Song (Melodica Cover), Krispy Kreme, the whole gang — will never be forgotten. Great job, viral videos. Great job, 2012 Gummy Awards. We’ll see you next year!
